First of all, the positives: this was a good size plant, not too large and the taste was pretty good. The tomatoes were a good size too; the ones that didn't have blossom end rot! I'd say the first quarter to half of the crop had BER. In a productive variety, this might be overlooked, but this is not a high yielding variety. This was also supposed to be a disease resistant variety, but my plants had withered leaves and look diseased! The seed is fairly expensive, and I can tell you, it was NOT worth it.

Was doing some research looking for a high production variety and came across this one. The tomatoes were a good size, didn't split, and looked like the nice ones that you find in the grocery store. My experience was that the flavor was ok and the production was only average. Planted this in '06, but will not plant it this year.
